Happiness is fleeting.

Fulfilment is lasting.

I wake up every day to engage people in meaningful ways
so that we live in a more fulfilled world.

Stephen stands to engage people in meaningful ways so that we live in a more fulfilled world. He supports leaders as they create environments where their people feel inspired to go to work and feel safe and valued while they are there, so they can go on to accomplish remarkable things. He challenges teams to assess their relationship with technology, bringing the perspective that perhaps what we believe brings us together, is the very thing that isolates us. Though technology is a powerful tool, Stephen believes that when we disconnect from it, we are more able to connect, create and innovate.

As the founder of Inspiraction and Head Engagement Officer with Simon Sinek’s team at Start With Why, Stephen serves those inspired by the movement to inspire and live in service to others. In his engaging and dynamic style, Stephen speaks, leads workshops, consults and coaches to help leaders and organizations discover, articulate and live their Why – their driving purpose, cause or belief. He also co-hosts and co-produces the Start With Why Podcast, downloaded in over 150 countries.

Stephen graduated from the Richard Ivey School of Business with an HBA, focusing on leadership, communication and strategy. Stephen has worked with leaders internationally, with clients from the Business Development Bank of Canada, Boeing, Columbia Sportswear, the Ontario Provincial Police, Rutgers University, Travel Alberta, and Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants.

Stephen lives in Toronto, Canada.
